In my faith journey, sometimes I feel God has different ways of giving me reminders, consolations and assurance. A while ago, as usual, I made a very special prayer intention. A couple of days later, I received a call and true enough, my prayers was answered. I jumped with joy and right after that, as I look out of the window, I saw this:

Immediately, I sensed the Lord assuring me of His love, presence and also a reminder of His promise. He is always there for those who believes, for those who trusts. I was overcome with joy and love. Yes, especially in moments of darkness, God knows when to give a glimpse of light and hope.

The Gift of Friendship

Friendship is one of the greatest gifts a human being can receive. It is a bond beyond common goals, common interests, or common histories. It is a bond stronger than sexual union can create, deeper than a shared fate can solidify, and even more intimate than the bonds of marriage or community. Friendship is being with the other in joy and sorrow, even when we cannot increase the joy or decrease the sorrow. It is a unity of souls that gives nobility and sincerity to love. Friendship makes all of life shine brightly. Blessed are those who lay down their lives for their friends.

New Post

The New Year has just begun and seems I am behind time again. Everything seems to have a new beginning and even in some of our apostolic activities. So, what's up?
Just last weekend, we had our first Journey Within Session with young women who seek to discern for the vocation in life. 3 lovely young women attended and looking forward to a journey together for the next few months. We had the grace of having Sr. Wendy who just came back from States. So, she shared with us her vocational story which I believed must have touched the young women in different ways. We ended with an hour of adoration with the community and fellowship.
This week, I am into planning some vocational programs and plans for re-designing the website. I felt like helpless since I am not so technologically creative and artistic. Let's hope that something will turn up then.
